Journeys of the Heart

An author's journey

History Happening


rt 2008 redu (2)While at RomantiCon I had my first experience as a conference presenter.  Three other authors, Tracy Cooper-Posey, Ruby Storm, Mary Ann Chulick and I served on the Researching and Writing Historical Fiction panel.  (Tracy and me below)

054 (2)

We had great information and covered a wide array of historical time periods in our books.  Obviously, lots to share.  The downside was we had to do it in 35 minutes which was cut to 25 minutes since we were the last session before all the authors were to set up for the big culminating book fair.  Still, we managed to pull off a decent program, considering we had no time to prepare and barely knew each other.  Best of all, we had an audience. 

The up side was that all our research didn’t go for naught.  Tracy Cooper-Posey set up a history portal on her website.  What’s a portal you ask? (I know I had to ask).  To really understand you’ll have to visit it.  It’s beautiful, easy to navigate and chock full of cool articles, hints on writing historical fiction and lists of fabulous resources.  You can find it at:

Authors, readers and history buffs will all find something useful and informative.  So check it out.  Then let me know what you think about it.  We’re hoping to expand on it, so comments are appreciated.
